PBJ Pies

Peanut Butter and Jelly Baby Lattice Pies

1 roll Pillsbury pie dough

1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 Cup Smucker’s Strawberry Preserves
1 egg white whisked with 1 teaspoon water for egg wash

Sugar Crystals for sprinkling on top if desired

2 Tablespoons powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll pie crust onto a lightly floured surface. Use a 2 1/2 inch round cutter to cut out circles in dough (I used a random little cup that worked great). Lightly press dough rounds into greased mini muffin tin. Roll remaining scraps of dough to an even thickness then use a sharp knife to cut thin 1/8 inch strips to create the lattice topping. Set aside.

2. With a small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop a heaping teaspoon into each of the pie crusts. Do the same with the jam. Using the pie strips, form the lattice top. See pictures above for help. Cut excess dough from edges and brush tops lightly with the egg wash, sprinkle with sugar crystals (optional) and bake for 25-30 minutes or until nice and golden brown.

3. Remove and with the tip of a knife, loosen edges where jam has oozed out. Carefully remove from pan after 5 minutes with the help of the knife and let cool. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with milk!
